Lynx forward Seimone Augustus had an MRI on her left knee Thursday, and the results will be known Friday, according to Aaron Seehusen, the team's public relations coordinator.

After the team's leading scorer left Wednesday's game at Phoenix because of a knee injury, team doctors initially told Augustus that "nothing's torn" and that it didn't look "serious," according to her father, Seymore.

Seymore Augustus said his wife, Kim, flew to the Twin Cities on Thursday evening because they're a tight-knit family, not because the injury is more severe than originally thought.

The Lynx play at Seattle tonight. Augustus returned to the Twin Cities on Thursday and underwent more tests, after she was originally diagnosed with a knee sprain.

"I was watching it and still can't figure it out," Seymore Augustus said about the way his daughter was injured.

Augustus, the WNBA's third-leading scorer, averages 21.0 points, 2.0 steals and 4.2 rebounds per game for the Lynx (4-2), who are in second place in the WNBA's Western Conference.

Augustus was hurt in the second quarter of a 104-80 loss to the Mercury. After the game, new Lynx coach Jen Gillom said of the injury: "It's one of those things that you can't control in life, but it doesn't look good at all."
